Bolton skipper Davies: FA Cup is irrelevant

Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Davies admits FA Cup participation is the furthest thing from his thoughts.

Bolton's players had a team meeting at their Euxton training complex on Monday morning to be given the latest bulletin on Fabrice Muamba's condition.

"Any of those questions are irrelevant at the minute," he said on Monday. "I have been speaking to the manager and I have travelled back with the chairman. He went back down to support Fabrice and his family.

"It was optional to come into training today and decisions will have to be made but my immediate thoughts are with Fabrice and his family.

"The club will take a stance on it in the next couple of days. But at the minute we want to just try and help Fabrice."

Davies went to hospital with Muamba on Saturday night and marvelled at the work of medical staff, who he is convinced saved Muamba's life.

"The amount of people who were turning up, running around trying to get Fabrice sorted out was amazing," he said. "There is no doubt in my mind if it wasn't down to all those people, we wouldn't even be in this situation.

"We are all thankful to them that they have given Fabrice a bit of hope."
